Starting in 2018, the central PA trail running scene will take on a brand new look! 15 different races will team up…breaking away from the old Trophy Series to form the new Rocksylvania Trail Series. The series will showcase some of the best trail races in the state. We took the original Trophy Series and tweaked it to add more races and distance options to give runners more of a variety and more chances to win.
The series will expand to 15 local races broken down into three divisions based on race distance.
Division 1 – 10K
Division 2 – Half Marathon
Division 3 – 25k
This will give runners the option of concentrating on distances that are more to their liking. You can run as many or as few races as you’d like, but the more races you run in one particular category, the better your chances are in winning a prize. Falcon Timing will be scoring each runner based on their age group finish at each race and prizes will be awarded to the top male and female of each age group at the end of the year.
To earn a Rocksylvania tech tee, a runner must either run all 5 races in one category or finish at least 8 total races in the Series. Good luck everyone!!!!
